Keep Your Post

With the Theory of Evolution everything is subject to change at any time. A water molecule can change into virtually anything else. A tree can be broken down to the molecular level, and then re-arranged to become something totally different. A male can change his gender to being female. An unborn baby can be killed because it hasn’t fully formed into a “real” human yet. With evolution nothing has to be permanent.

Scientifically speaking, it’s true that things can be broken down and re-arranged into other things.

But, consider this verse:

“And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day…”~Jude 1:6 (NKJV)

This verse does not say: “The angels sinned against God” (which they did), or “The angels rebelled against God” (which they also did); but instead it talks about how they abandoned the place where God had placed them.

“And the angels which kept not their first estate,…. Or ‘principality’; that holy, honourable, and happy condition, in which they were created; for they were created in perfect holiness and righteousness, stood in the relation of sons to God, and were, for the lustre of their nature, comparable to the morning stars; they were among the thrones, dominions, principalities, and powers; were a superior rank of creatures to men, and who beheld the face, and enjoyed the presence of God; but this estate they kept not, for being mutable creatures, one of them first sinning, the rest were drawn into it by him, and so were not what they were before, nor in the same estate, or place…”~John Gill (Commentary on Jude)

The angels abandoned their places of authority because they were dis-satisfied with the place that God had put them.

God gave Adam and Eve a place of authority and they abandoned it. God gave the people of Israel a place of authority, and they constantly abandoned it. God has given the Church a place of authority, and we too, constantly abandon it. God has given each individual Christian a place of authority…

Think twice before you before you abandon yours.

Jesus, on the other hand, never strayed from His position of authority, or from His mission. It’s because He didn’t abandon His place, that I can be forgiven for the times I abandon mine. It’s because He didn’t abandon His place, that I have the ability to keep mine.
